Dave - If I remember correctly, Ocke licensed some of his technology to an English company by that name who tried to graft the wing concept on to their conventional hull. Seems that the results came out well below the sum of the parts (and proved the old adage "It's got to be a complete PACKAGE.")

I have watched the batboats at many races and poker runs, but never ridden in or driven one. They are amazing to watch in rough water. I hope they continue to do well. It is nice to see a program that offers a racing program to the "lay" person.

Question Anybody notice?

In all the pictures of the Mannerfelt designs, you never see the boats far from level, do you? Although everyone makes a lot of the wings, there must be something to the hull design as well. Here's a shot of the 28' hull without wings, but with a RIB collar. Seems like the attitude isn't quite as good (more aero lift in the front from the collar?), but it's still not too bad...:
